This chest is a graduation gift for my son. It is made with mahogany, maple and walnut.
The finish on the mahogany is Watco Teak Oil. For some reason the Teak Oil did not get this particular mahogany to the deep rich color I was looking for. I used The Anarchist’s Daughter’s wax and it deepened the mahogany’s color further than the oil did which I am happy about.
The inside of the chest has several coats of Sealcoat. The Walnut was finished with Watco’s Dark Walnut Oil and Minwax’s Polycrylic varnish.
I seeded the chest with a basic set of tools. About 50-50 vintage vs. new.. The astute will notice that I “splurged”, and purchased one of Bob Summerfield's table saws .
Thanks for looking.
